Pasco man accused of putting gun in girlfriend's mouth


Report: Man puts gun in girlfriend's mouth

During an argument early Wednesday with his girlfriend, Kyle Edward Goldy, 28, shoved the muzzle of a gun in her mouth, authorities say.

The woman was not injured, and she said Goldy told her later the gun was not loaded, according to his arrest report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Goldy, of 2835 Finch Drive, did not admit having possession of the gun but said he was sorry for what happened, the report says.

He was arrested on a charge of aggravated domestic assault with a deadly weapon. He remained at the Land O'Lakes jail Wednesday with bail set at $15,000.


Man's license has been suspended 15 times

About 9 a.m. Tuesday, a sheriff's deputy patrolling along State Road 52 pulled over a Ford Taurus just east of Kent Grove Drive. The car was driving eastbound in the westbound lane, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report says.

When the deputy ran a computer check, this came up: Joseph Robert Ferraro, a driver who has had his license suspended 15 times and been designated a habitual traffic offender.

Court and state driving records show Ferraro, 27, has had numerous traffic tickets, plus failures to appear in court on those tickets. His ex-girlfriend, his brother and his sister have all accused him of violence, resulting in criminal charges including aggravated domestic battery, violating a domestic violence injunction and criminal mischief. In some of those cases, after Ferraro pleaded to the charges, he later violated his probation by failing to pay court fines and ended up with a suspended license.

On Tuesday, he was charged once again with driving with a suspended license and released from the county jail later that day after posting $5,000 bail.


Woman pawns ring she didn't own, police say

A woman accused of pawning a $200 diamond ring she didn't own told police she sent some of the proceeds to Nigeria.

Angela M. Sipes, 37, of 5231 Hemlock Drive, is charged with false verification of ownership.

Her arrest report by New Port Richey police says she was shipped the jewelry from an eBay seller, who was never paid. Sipes told police she was sent the ring and other packages and was "told to pawn the items and send the money to Nigeria."

Sipes said she kept some of the money for herself, the report says.

She was released from jail Tuesday after posting $5,000 bail.


Man with weapons faces drug charges

A 38-year-old Thonotosassa man was spotted Tuesday morning by a deputy on Jerry Road carrying an array of weapons: Samurai sword, switch blade, screw driver bits, pliers and a nunchaku he fashioned himself, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

But it was the drugs that landed William Leonard Bowman in jail.

The report says Bowman had marijuana and three drug-smoking pipes on him, one of which contained methamphetamine residue.

Bowman, who remains jailed on charges of possession of marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, told the deputy that he made the nunchaku after being arrested for having another pair, the report said.

His bail was set at $5,300.
